Revenge of the Classic Commercials

Shoutbox

nocturnal YL: The synthesis puzzles are fun and a bit difficult, and the time limit is quite tight. It generally feels close to Arland (but more complex). The story and UI aren't good in comparison, but this game is otherwise great. Comparable with Totori overall. Feb 18, 2024 15:57:20 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Cool. Atelier Ayesha DX has a save data corruption glitch, and now I cannot even start the game. Feb 20, 2024 12:46:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It happened after I reached the ending. Something was off (the end credits did not show), and I looked around the Extra menu trying to launch it, and bam! Game crashed, and Launching the game now results in a black screen. Feb 20, 2024 13:13:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And I'm 100% sure it's save data corruption. Deleting the save data solved the problem, and restoring it would reinstate the issue. Feb 20, 2024 13:14:49 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Ironically, I re-joined NSO to protect my Ciel nosurge DX save data, which ended up not needing it. I haven't closed my Atelier Ayesha DX session and have set my save data backup to fully manual. And it's this seemingly stable game that ended up failing. Feb 20, 2024 13:46:19 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I hope you haven't lost too much. Feb 20, 2024 15:15:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: That's the entire save file, about 70 hours of progress, possibly gone. I wrote to KOEI TECMO GAMES about that, but last time I told them about a Firis DX bug they replied "we could reproduce, but game is too old to reopen development", so I'm not hopeful. Feb 20, 2024 15:23:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I almost 100% completed everything other than the original game's DLC or the Plus features too. Though I guess with better knowledge of the extra bosses, I'll be better prepared in a hypothetical 2nd run. Still prefer a proper New Game+ though. Feb 20, 2024 15:28:16 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: Wow, and after you put all that time into it. That would really sour my impression of a game. Do you plan to redo everything? Feb 20, 2024 18:17:54 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I think I'll most likely move on for now. Maybe I'll get back to it in the future; I'm thinking about replaying everything in the series at some point (since a few games have second-playthrough-only bonuses), which might be years from now. Feb 21, 2024 9:13:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I started the demo for Unicorn Overlord. I've barely gotten into it, but it's already VERY impressive! Feb 23, 2024 11:17:39 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: KOEI TECMO GAMES sent me a politely-worded "sorry, can't help, also this game is out of support". I expected as much. Feb 27, 2024 9:23:09 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Guess I shouldn't get too hung up about it. Atelier Ayesha DX is a relatively short game with a speedrun time of 2 hours. It probably won't take more than 30 hours if I skip cutscenes and battle animations. Feb 27, 2024 10:18:58 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've started a third playthrough of Fire Emblem Engage, this time with the DLC. Can't remember if I've ever heard Tiki's English voice before, but I wasn't expecting her to have a British accent. Feb 29, 2024 18:01:37 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It has been 7 full years since the release of Nintendo Switch. I have played 43 games, which makes it 6 games per year on average. At this rate, I really won't need another system until the end of the decade. Mar 2, 2024 13:06:11 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I was considering making a top 10 favorite Switch games, but I'm wondering if I should hold off on it for now. Mar 3, 2024 9:42:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: If you mean it as a look back at Nintendo Switch, I'd say not now. the system is still technically ongoing. Mar 3, 2024 9:57:41 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Yeah, that's what I was thinking. If rumors are to be believed, the Switch has another year of life. Mar 3, 2024 10:46:13 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: The mourning period for my Atelier Ayesha DX save data is over. I'll be starting Atelier Escha & Logy DX (1st run) soon.
I'll be approaching it differently, in multiple ways. I'll read a Plus guide instead of a PS3 guide, for one.

nocturnal YL: I'll be playing nothing but Atelier Dusk until at least halfway in the year, so be prepared for my nonstop blabbering. Mar 3, 2024 11:07:55 GMT -5
